With Halloween upon us, we figured it was the perfect time to share this spooky-inspired wedding at our venue earlier this year. With friends in the film industry and with a love for all things scary, Madi and Reid hosted an amazing Halloween-inspired wedding. If you’re a lover of moody florals, 12-foot skeletons, and spooky touches wherever you look, keep on scrolling for Halloween wedding inspiration!
Let’s start with the ceremony area.
Have you ever seen a 12-foot skeleton used as wedding decor? We hadn’t either, but Madi and Reid were inspired to use it after they saw it everywhere the previous Halloween.
They opted to add some of our faux white greenery across the altar with their florist, Brides and Blooms, adding arrangements of fern greenery, white roses, and moody burgundy florals to the middle posts.
Down the aisle, Brides and Blooms added floral arrangements to the aisle chairs, tying together perfectly with the altar.
Leading down the path to the ceremony, they also had a chalkboard sign with the famous Mandalorian quote, “This Is The Way.”
It wouldn’t be a Halloween-inspired wedding without a costume, right?
Instead of having a flower girl, they had one of their good friends be the “flower man” and toss petals down the aisle. Then, instead of a traditional ring bearer, they had a friend dress up in an inflatable dinosaur costume to deliver the rings to the officiant. I doubt we’ll ever see this again, but when you’re throwing this kind of wedding, all traditions are out the window!
Moving on to the reception area, they brought in a vintage velvet loveseat to set up in the lawn as a photo booth backdrop. Their florist added an extra arrangement to the sofa to create some extra dimension, and they surrounded the chair with tombstone props and an angel statue.
Throughout the night, guests signed river stones in place of a traditional guest book. And of course, more Halloween decor - this time black pumpkins - to keep the theme going.
With a color palette of rose quartz, burgundy, and black, their reception tables included black linens, light pink place settings, and floral centerpieces with greenery, white roses, and red and burgundy flowers.
The floral centerpieces were displayed in floral black skulls rather than traditional vases to continue with the Halloween thread.
The Halloween decor didn’t stop with their head table. Their Mr. and Mrs. seats were these vintage burgundy high-back chairs which tied in perfectly with their colors. They brought in some of their own Halloween decorations to dress up the table, and their florist added a few more arrangements to top everything off.
At their reception, they had a fire pit with s'mores station. They brought in ceramic yellow skulls to add to the firepit to give it an extra glow.
Their 3-tiered wedding cake from The Baking Grounds was adorned with macarons matching their color palette as well as more florals from Brides & Blooms. In true Halloween style, their cake plate was none other than black and white china plate with a skeleton bride and groom printed on it along with the words, “Till Death Do Us Part.”
